Memorial Day events

On Monday, May 28, there will be the annual Memorial Day Parade through downtown Beaufort, starting at 10 a.m. at the corner of Rogers and Boundary streets, looping along Bay Street and back.

Then at noon on Saturday, the Beaufort National Cemetery will have a Memorial Day ceremony, with keynote speaker Capt. Joan Renee Queen, the commanding officer at Naval Hospital Beaufort. With American flags placed on the graves, it’s a fitting place to remember the meaning behind Memorial Day and honor the men and women who have served our country.
